Kuppet wants national exams postponed

29 September 2015, 10:20 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Vice Chairman, Julius Korir says national exams should be postponed until the teachers' pay crisis is solved.

Speaking in Nairobi on Monday, Korir said students were doing exams in unfavourable conditions, and there is a possibility that they won’t perform well.

“The students are doing the exams in unfavourable conditions. Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) should postpone the exams a bit, and resume after solving teachers’ pay crisis,” Korir said.

However, KNEC Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Kivilu maintained that the exams will go on as scheduled, a position Education CS Jacob Kaimenyi has held since the teachers' strike began earlier this month.

“Those calling for the exams to be postponed are misadvised. We spent a lot of time and resources preparing for these exams and this can’t go to waste," he said.

According to kivilu, the practical exams kicked off on Monday under the supervision of assessors from KNEC and no hitch has been reported so far.

Kivilu was confident that the stalemate between teachers and Teachers Service Commission would be solved before the start of theory papers.

“For now, we don't need so many supervisors but they will be needed when theory exams begin and we hope a solution will have been found,” Kivilu said.
